is going. but for now, that wraps up our coverage from beijing. i'm james tengan. >>> u.s. leaders have been tracking china's political transition. president barack obama's administration has watched the chinese economy and military grow and has promised to take a tough stance with china on trade and other economic matters. the obama administration has also closely monitored china's disputes with japan and southeast asian nations over the islands in the east and south china seas. senior officials have refused to take sides. the president announced a year ago he will shift his country's focus to the asia-pacific region. he will have a chance to talk more about that plan over the weekend. obama will begin a four-day tour of southeast asia on saturday. he will be visiting thailand and myanmar and will attend the east asia summit in cambodia. the president promised during his re-election campaign to put more pressure on china to make it meet basic international standards with respect to trade. but analysts say despite his plans the world's top economies are tightly woven together and that i
clear yesterday that he is open to new ideas. the u.s. cannot afford tax cuts that were passed 10 years ago -- over 10 years ago now. he feels that the most fair way to pick our revenue shortfall is by raising revenue from the very top. >> explained to everyone, if you can. under balsams and, it was predicted that we have -- bowl es-simpson, it was predicted that we would have 16 trillion dollars. even if you have that, why is that ok to have 22 trillion dollars of debt at in 10 years? by the is that considered still a good thing to do? -- why is that considered still a good thing to do it? >> the best capacity is the size of the debt relative to the economy. what the president has proposed is to put us on a path where the debt is stabilized and we are coming down relative to gdp. >> it is still 100% of gdp. >> i would explain a little bit about the numbers. that is the 16 trillion dollar figure that you mentioned earlier. i do nothing that is inappropriate way of measuring our debt. it is not the measure of that that is economic relevant. >> ten or 12? >> closer to 12. >> ok. the unemp
that anybody breached the national security in the scandal that's erupted around two top u.s. generals. but the president notes the investigation is still going on. president obama held his first white house news conference of his new term today. reporters asked him whether investigators should have informed the white house about the scandal before the election. >> what i will say is, is that if, um, it is also possible that had we been told, then you would be sitting here asking a question about why were you interfering in a criminal investigation. >> shepard: the president said he thinks it's best if we just wait to get more information about how all of this unfolded. no question it is complicated so here is a bit of a recap of all the cast members and plot twists in this ongoing well soap opera. last week then cia director david petraeus resigned as we learned that he had been sleeping with his biographer paula broadwell. that affair came out after the fbi started investigating paula broadwell for allegedly sending emails to another woman jill kellily a friend of david petraeus fami
was in communication with general allen, the top u.s. commander in afghanistan. how did she know him? kelley volunteered to organize social events for senior officers at her home near mcdill air force base in tampa. the e-mails between general allen and kelley are said to be flirtatious and owe tensionally embarrassing but officials with knowledge of the e-mails say they were not sexually ex- police sit and did not offer any evidence of an affair. but, now, general allen's nomination to lead nato is in limbo. >> no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job at isap and leading those forces. he certainly has my continued confidence to lead our forces and continue the fight. but his nomination has been put on hold as a prudent measure until we determine what the facts are. >> reporter: for the first time sin the scandal broke, president obama weighed in on general david petraeus. >> he served this country with great distinction in iraq, in afghanistan and as head of the cia. >> reporter: one lingering question has been whether nag that you will security wa
to the u.s. it's possible you could see the end of the arab spring at that conference held at columbus university in 2008. there's a matter of the public diplomacy people coming into the state department are often shunted off into consular work for eight years or whatever, for a long time before the ever get to any public diplomacy were. it's as though you're in the military and call your officers and send them off to, i don't know, do social work and then suddenly brought them back and said now you're in charge of the squadron. well anyway, but -- >> well, thank you, ambassador. and by the way, as far as the arab spring is concerned, i know that i was personally accused by some right wing bloggers having omitted the arab spring but i wish it were true, because of this event. although the event enabled me to do. the thing that was most fun of all of all the things that it did when i was undersecretary, which was that i got to call on the egyptian ambassador. i don't know if you really does, and made them come to my office and dressing gown which is sort of a great thing you can do trad
consulate and killed four americans including u.s. ambassador christopher stevens. both the house and the senate want to know what went wrong, what members of the obama administration knew, what they knew it and why tke th-pbt do more to prevent the attack or respond in time. chief intelligent correspondent catherine herridge is live on capital hill with all of this. catherine the latest. let's start with the testimony of general petraeus and the testimony we just heard about that secretary clinton will attend. >> well, thank you, jenna and good morning. two important developments here on capitol hill. fox' confirmation this morning that the former cia director david petraeus will testify before the house and senate intelligence committees. these will be closed or classified sessions early friday morning, and also confirmation that secretary of state hillary clinton will testify here on the hill and give the read out, or the results of their internal review at the state department about the benghazi attack, and that announcement was made at the house foreign affairs committee a sh
to train. specialist nelson is just one of 60 -- 60 u.s. service members who have been killed this year by the afghans that they were sent to train. i don't know where the outrage is by the united states congress. i am very disappointed in both parties, their leadership to allow our young men and women to stay in a war that has no end to it, makes no sense to the american people. in fact, mr. speaker, the american people have said time after time, poll after poll that they want to bring our troops home now, not 2014 but now. on october 7, there was a national article written and the title was "a mother mourns a grim milestone," referring to the 2,000 american casualties from the afghan war. lisa freeman, who was interviewed in the article, who lost her son, captain matthew freeman, in 2009, he was shot by a sniper in afghanistan, ms. freeman said, i just sat here reliving the pain and wondering , where is america's outrage? where is america's concern that we're still at war? and mr. speaker, i made reference to this yesterday. the october 14 "new york times" editorial, and the title, "t
20th. >>> u.s. president barack obama declared his intention to raise taxes on wealthy americans. he says he wants to discuss this openly with republicans who control the house of representatives. obama on wednesday held his first news conference since re-election. he expressed strong concern about expiring tax cuts and automatic spending cuts referred to as the fiscal cliff. unless lawmakers can agree by the end of this year to extend the tax cuts for middle class, the economy could plummet. >> we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. we should at least do what we agree on, and that's to keep middle class taxes lower. >> obama stressed the u.s. cannot afford to extend tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% of the population if it wants to reduce the country's mounting deficit. obama asked for cooperation from republicans. he said he is open to compromise and open to new ideas that could bring about a rise in tax revenues. >>> let's check on the markets. first, looking at currencies. just having a look at the dollar similar yen at 80.19-21. that's
the attack. at the center of the storm, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations. republicans say she misled the country. fox 5s tom fitzgerald is here and i guess it appears the president's strong quest ask or demands telling them to come back after him, back off, susan rice, didn't do a lot of good. >> reporter: no, in fact, it was the opposite that was resparked as both sides accused the others of using the ben ghazi attack to their own advantage. the republican-controlled house foreign affairs committee accept -- but they answered questions. instead, witnesses consisting of career government facilities officials and conservative thinktank experts offered their assessment of the administration's actions on ben ghazi. the attack killed four americans, including the u.s. ambassador chris stevens. yesterday, president obama intensely defended u.n. ambassador susan rice who was under fire for saying the attack was a protest gone out of control, rather that a terrorist incident. today, democrats and republicans went after each other for trying to politicize ben ghazi. >> what is clear is that
to the defense of susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, who just a few days after the attack as you recall said violence on the u.s. consulate in benghazi began as a spontaneous protest against an anti-islam film. two top-ranking republicans are vowing to block rice's nomination if she is picked to be the next secretary of state. the president firing back with a rare flash of anger. >> senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> white house correspondent dan lothian, live from washington this morning. it's really nice to see you, dan. >> good to see you. >> let's first talk about the fiscal cliff. the president said we could see a deal by next week. that may hinge on this issue with taxes. how are republicans responding to the president's remarks? >> well, you know, first of all, there does seem a willingness by republicans to find areas of agreement, to reach a compromise. but they are pushing back on the president's plan because they don't believe that a solution should lie in tax hikes for any americans, including the
of the u.s. forces in afghanistan and his nominee to lead nato. but mr. obama was silent on allen. the same f.b.i. investigation uncovered e-mails between allen and a socialite, jill kelly, who hosted functions for central command in tampa, where both petraeus and allen had worked. based on those e-mails, mr. obama placed allen's nomination to nato on hold. bob orr has our story tonight from washington. >> reporter: the career of general john allen hinges on the content of some 200 e-mails he exchanged with jill kelly. sources say allen was confronted with some of the e-mails by the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff martin dempsey. allen's attorney late today issued a statement saying general allen intends to fully cooperate with the inspector general investigators and directed his staff to do the same. allen has told officials he's done nothing wrong and has written nothing to kelly that would preclude his nomination. officials have characterized the communications with kelly as flirtatious, saying they contain nothing of an explicit sexual nature. but one official said the e- mails, i
and john mccain. they attacked her for saying the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, had been a spontaneous outburst of muslim anger when officials already knew it was a terrorist attack. and they insisted they'd oppose having her replace hillary clinton, who's stepping down as secretary of state. >> this is about the role she played around four dead americans when it seems to be that the story coming out of the administration-- and she's the point person-- is so disconnected from reality, i don't truster. and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better, and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> reporter: in response, the president was vehement in his defense of ambassador rice. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that ha

the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi spontaneous has reached a boiling point. after republicans threaten to block her possible nomination to secretary of state. >> the president thinks we are picking on people, he really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. >> senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >>> david petraeus will be on capitol hill tomorrow to testify about the september 11th attacks onhe u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. >>> we now know the identity of the fbi agent who triggered the investigation into the petraeus affair. >>> three people have been killed after rockets were fired into southern gaza. first israeli deaths killed a hamas military commander yesterday. >>> bp has agreed to pay a record penalty over the gulf oil disaster. it also includes criminal charges. >>> popular energy drink, fi five-hour energy, is making headlines because of a possible link to more than a dozen deaths. >>> carrying three babies is no easy feat, especially when they're the heaviest set of triplets
that vacancy at the cia has also now touched the current top u.s. commanding general in afghanistan, whose successor for that job is due to have his confirmation hearings in washington tomorrow. well, today at his first post-re-election press conference, the president largely deflected questions about who he would be appointing to all the top jobs in the administration for his second term. he deflected those questions today with one notable exception. one notable exception that just about took the roof off that room today. did you see this? >> senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today that they want to have watergate-style hearings on the attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and that if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter from making a nomination like that? >> first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nomi
of the events on the attacker the u.s. consulate have been riddled with discrepancies starting soon after the american dead and survivors led behind a charged compound and the bullets guard cia building in benghazi. how confident are you in the white house team? president obama defended yesterday amid criticism he received for poor performance given the issue. let's take a listen to some of the criticism that has been employed. this is on the senate floor yesterday. john mccain called for the select committee to investigate the attacks. [video clip] >> why is it that anybody including our ambassadors to the united nations would believe spontaneous demonstrations are composed of people with mortars, rocket-propelled grenades, and heavy weapons? nobody believes that. why did president obama insists that he labeled the defense an act of terrorism on september 12 when we know now -- i repeat, we know now in an interview on the same day he refused to characterize the attacks in this way and spent two weeks putting the emphasis on a spontaneous protest to a hateful video including in his addres

quickly enough as something of this magnitude to lose a u.s. ambassador and three americans on an assault in consulate. we expect a lot of attention around david patreaus here early to visit with the house and intelligence committees. there has been concern not creating a spectacle because of the attention surrounding david patreaus now. and so there's been a bit of discussion about how the committees want to protect him. they want to hear from him but don't want to create a distraction that goes beyond his purpose for coming which is to talk about what he knew as cia director his trip to libya to investigation. there's a lot happening here in a sense of things moving forward after weeks surrounding the election period, when people were away when answers weren't coming. there's a new critical mass shining a light to get answers. >> speaking of shining a lot, the defense secretary leon panetta announced they'll have an ethics review to see if there should be better ethics training of top generals because of a number of lapses, not just these, a couple incidents that involve personal behavi

blamed the death of a u.s. ambassador and three other americans on this, quote, youtube video. why? because that's what she was told to do. she was following orders. it is becoming more and more clear where the orders are coming from. it's also clear that the president lied when he said this is one of the most critical moments at the 2012 presidential debates. remember when he said the following? >> the day after the attack, governor, i stood in the rose gards -- gard end and i told the american people and the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened, that this was an act of terror-- >>> obviously, that's not true because the president now admits he sent rice on tv to blame the youtube video. now in a moment, senator graham will join me to respond directly to the challenge. but first, think about the exchange we just witnessed and then ask yourself, where were the follow-ups from the media? instead it was softball after softball, the press failed to do their job. here are some of the questions that should have been presented today, regarding benghazi. first, mr. pr

americans born in the u.s.a., not immigrants recent immigrants, born here, all right? want immigration controls? do they want to stop the mass influx across the southern border? do they want to stop it? >> first of all, as you and i have discussed before, we know that four out of every 10 undocumented immigrants don't cross that border. they come legally to the united states. and there are others that come through other avenues. so i think what the ones that are -- those of us like me that were born here in this country, i think what happens is that we see the other -- our fellow latinos as our cousins, brothers, grandparents, and so we see them as part of an extended family. i think what is simplistic about this is to try to make this clear distinction between latinos born in the united states and those who arrived from latin american countries. it just doesn't work that way. so what we have is, we have, for example, 4 million american citizen children, papers don't have papers. we have hundreds of thousands of american citizens, husbands, whose wives don't have papers. and, in other
